Hi, 1998 Avalon XL, My ABS and Trac lights would come on and usually stay on. I replaced the battery as the one in the car only had 10.4 volts with the motor not running, After I put in a good battery the ABS and Trac lights have not come on ( Cross my fingers it stays that way) Carl H

This generally means that you have a problem with your brake system. I would try opening the hood and checking the brake fluid level on your Avalon.

How can I tell if a 96 Toyota Avalon XL has ABS


Easiest way is turn ignition switch on to run position do not start. Warning lights will light up on dash panel. There will be a orange light that comes on, if it has abs. Part of the self test diagnostics of abs system relates to this light coming on. If orange light goes on you have at least rear wheel abs. If you see wires coming out of the center of the back of each front wheel you have 4 wheel abs.

1999 toyota avalon horn works intermitely


I would suggest to you to have the spiral cable (or 'clockspring') replaced. This is the electrical unit that transfers power to the air bag, the horn and the cruise control.

It is located right under the seering wheel.

Your description of the issue indicates to me that your spiral cable is loose, and making intermittant contact. If the vehicle had an air-bag deployment, this cable-device should have been changed.

ABS light on!


Its possible you damaged a rear wheel speed sensor when you did the strut job. If the wire was pulled tight when the strut was removed it could have pulled the copper strands in the wire from the sensor causing a open circuit. This is not uncommon. You need to have the ABS system scanned for codes and see which rear wheel sensor is effected. If you were to just clear the code it will just come back on. With the ABS light on, the ABS system is deactivated and the brake system works normally as a car without ABS.

ABS light is on and Track-Off light is blinking


"ABS light came on and Track-off light started blinking"
This happened after I replaced the rear struts (shock absorbers") It turned out to be the left rear wheel sensor ($156.75). I must have damaged it when I replaced the strut. The way to check the 'rear' sensors is to remove the back seat to gain access to each sensor plug (2 prongs). Unplug it and check for continuity. If there is no continuity then you have a bad sensor, or an unlikely break in one of the wires. I checked for a break in each wire but they were fine.
